Q. Which bike is the best for long rides?
  • As per my opinion , RE bikes are good in order of their quality and riding comfort. I recent drove my RE TB 350 for 300 KM long drive to Trichy and back to Bangalore . After riding around 150 KMs , my left shoulder started hurting me and due to this , I couldn’t turn my head to right , if turn so , my shoulder hurts more than normal .So I have decided from then . Not to go long ride which is more than 150KMs. It remain hurts for few days after the ride finished . It’s my opinion . It may be due to my height . I am 6 ft tall .

Q. Which is best bike, NS 200, Dominar 400 and Himalayan?
  • So the category is real different. Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 is a good machine in the lower segment. It is affordable, easy to maintain and value for money. It has a high revving engine so it tends to get a little buzzy at high rpm. The low end torque is missing. Because of the smaller engine, the bike has a tough time going against the wind or doing long rides. The Dominar 400 is a good machine. Comfortable seating, mid sized engine, good power output, handles long rides like its nothing at all. Impressive performance. Suspension is on the stiffer size though. Not that big a deal. The switches and other parts are good. would rate a 3/5 on the fit and finish. Best budget buy.The Himalayan is a mile muncher. the bike has its own style. Onroad manners are nice and off road the Himalayan is a beast. The best part is, that it is raw. The posture is perfect to saddle and the bike is rugged. Can handle getting down and dirty. More than you can expect. It depends on what you are expecting the bike to do.
  • All 3 bikes represent completely different segments .NS 200 is a naked street fighter which can be easily used is daily commute and also some free styling with your bike due to it's light weight .Dominar 400 is a high powerd speed cruiser. This bike best for highway Crusing guys who wants to travel the road with some good speed and power.And on the other side , Himalayan is completely different bike . This is purposely build for off Roading . So it doesn't matters what kind of road you want to travel , you can go to nastiest roads with Himalayan .
  • NS 200 is like a city bike. Dominar 400 is a touring bike. Himalayan is the cheapest adventure touring bike. If you plan to ride in city only then go for NS 200. If you plan to go for occasional highway rides(no off road) then Dominar. If you want to enjoy the true awesomeness of Himalayan you should ride it off road.

Q. I want to buy Cruiser bike but I am confused between Thunderbird and Avenger, which one should I buy
  • If u r into riding long distance then the tb 350 but it has no abs on the other hand avenger has got abs single channel both the bikes got same power but tb350 has tubetire,350x has tubeless and avenger tube tire.If your budget is somewhat near 2L then should wait for the tb350 abs or should go for classic signals 350 or 500 abs.TB 350 is a nise looking bulky bike as i own one, but on hard braking the tire gets locked, what i would suggest wait a little more for tb to get abs.
  • Thunderbird 350 would be a great option as it as great pickup and perfect mileage. The cost is just right for the bike and on the highway and when you are all alone the bike becomes a great companion and becomes a part of you with time...
  • I have been riding thunderbird for the last 7 years and i have had no issues for the maintenance of the same as some of them have had it is how you do the periodic maintenance it will serve you for a long time to come my choice would be the BIRD
